Extra gardai on patrol on our beaches this Bank Holiday weekend
Planning on visiting the beaches at Laytown, Mornington or Bettystown this Bank Holiday weekend?
Visitors to the Meath coast are being advised that extra Gardai will be on patrol to maintain public order while people who park illegally or in spaces reserved for drivers with disability will be issued fines.
Ahead of the June Bank Holiday weekend Meath Co Council stated there is no parking on the beach at Bettystown or Laytown.
"A small number of spaces are available on the beach for those with Disability Badges and for older persons. Fines will be issued to those ineligible to park in these spaces.
"Parking is available at Laytown Car Park, Netterville Terrace and there is some on street parking in Bettystown Village. Free parking is available on Saturday and "Sunday at Colaiste na hInse, Laytown.
"There is ‘All Day Parking’ available behind Funtasia in Bettystown for €4 per day." said a spokesperson.
Meanwhile, Gardai have advised those intending to visit the coastal beach areas of Gormanstown, Laytown, Bettystown or Mornington that additional Gardaí will be on duty in these areas to maintain Public Order and to ensure that the Road Traffic Act is enforced.
"Please do not park in a manner which could obstruct other road users or residents. "There is no beach parking and very limited street parking. People are advised to use public transport where possible."
Gardai said a large number of Fixed Notice Penalty Notices were issued last weekend in respect of illegal parking. "The same approach will be adopted this weekend if breaches of the parking regulations are detected by Gardaí."
